Nicola Sturgeon will stand down as First Minister of Scotland after eight years.
Earlier today, the First Minister was warned bringing in a deposit return scheme as planned in August would be “reckless”, with the damning verdict issued by a cross-party group at Holyrood including MSPs from her own party.
A recent poll showed two thirds of voters are opposed to the First Minister’s plans to fight the upcoming general election as a de facto independence referendum, according to a new poll.
Support for independence also dropped substantially, from 53% to 47% among decided voters.
SNP support at Westminster dropped marginally from 43% to 42%.
